Kōrero: Nōnahea a Aotearoa nōhia tuatahitia ai?

Ngā paparanga ngarehu o Taupō me Kaharoa

Ngā paparanga ngarehu o Taupō me Kaharoa

Ka whakaatu te whakaahua nei i ngā paparanga ngārehu i horahia, nō te wā o ngā hū o Taupō (232 AD ±15) me Kaharoa (1314 AD ±12); kei te one o Waihī i Te Moana a Toitehuatahi tēnei wāhi. Kitea ai te paparanga o Taupō i runga ake i te wai, ko te paparanga o Kaharoa kei waenganui. He momo tikanga ine i te taenga o te tangata, te tātari i ngā paparanga ngārehu nō te wā o ngā hū: ko ngā paparanga o runga ngā mea tōmuri rawa, ko ngā paparanga o raro iho ngā mea tahito. Kāore anō kia kitea he taunakitanga kei raro iho i ngā paparanga ngārehu nei e tohu ana ki te noho a te tangata ki Aotearoa.
